Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships (PC)

Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships, the sequel to the popular Age of Pirates franchise, reinvents itself with a larger playing field and tons of exciting new content. From the game's new combat system and trading options to its numerous quests and character classes, players will have countless hours of entertainment at their fingertips. In addition, the game's free-roaming options expand the already massive storyline to include endless play through uncharted waters, new islands and undiscovered cities.

Players courageous enough to delve into the dangerous world of Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships will discover treasure and adventure as they choose to go it alone and become the most feared pirate on the seven seas, or prove their loyalty and take the coin of one of four different navies; French, English, Spanish or Dutch. As players navigate their own route through the seas of the Caribbean they can explore strange new countries and undiscovered civilizations, plunder merchant ships and even raid fortified ports and cities — interacting with most characters and buildings along the way.

Players will experience tons of ship-to-ship combat and toe-to-toe clashes, as they cross paths with real-life historical characters such as Jamaican governors Colonel Thomas Lynch and Thomas Modyford. Almost everything in the game can be adjusted according to players' wishes, making customization and resource management a key element to gameplay.

This pirate adventure role playing game (RPG) is not for the faint of heart, as neither the dead nor the seas sleep easy in this mythic land. Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships has been rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB.

Delta Force: Xtreme 2 (PC)

The world's most deadly fighting force is back in all new multiplayer combat, as action game developer and publisher NovaLogic Inc. announced today the release of Delta Force: Xtreme 2 (DFX2) game for the PC. The sequel to the bestselling Delta Force: Xtreme is supported by the NovaWorld Community, a multiplayer network that provides smoother, faster and seamless gameplay for up to 150* players per game. With 10 single-player missions and nine co-op missions within two campaigns, players immerse themselves into the Delta Force experience by battling enemies in Asia. Now available for download from www.novalogic.com, Valve, Direct2Drive and RealNetworks and at retail locations nationwide, DFX2 carries the recession busting price of just $29.99 (MSRP).

"We listened to the fans of the original Delta Force: Xtreme and created an amazing multiplayer world filled with the features they asked for most; intense gameplay, game balancing and an all-around FUN experience," commented Michael Domaguing, NovaLogic's director of marketing. "Teamwork is key to being successful in DFX2 and we give you all the tools to make this a great party game, no matter where you are in the world, from Milwaukee to the Middle East."

DFX2 offers intense military gameplay in stunning 1080p "Full HD" and Dolby 7.1 Surround sound, and with game servers placed strategically around the world, the NovaWorld Community provides the gameplay that fans demand. Featuring 20 content-rich multiplayer maps, DFX2 supports five of the most popular game types: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Team King of the Hill, Capture the Flag, and Flagball. Each detailed map will have something for everyone, from large, vehicle heavy battlefields to small, intense engagement zones. In addition to the feature-loaded multiplayer experience, gamers of all skill levels can mix it up in two heart-pounding single-player or co-operative campaigns where players assume the role of a Delta Force operator sent to Asia to bring a drug cartel and former Soviet mercenaries to justice.

The NovaWorld Community allows every element of the gameplay, from the enhanced ballistics to the innovative in-vehicle spawn system, to be carefully coordinated to support a fully balanced experience where teamwork is deadlier than individual firepower, and in DFX2, intelligence and creativity are rewarded as much as fast-twitch reflexes. The game also ships with a powerful MED level editor, which will allow gamers full utilization of game assets to create their own levels, including additional multiplayer game types.

Saints Row 2: Corporate Warfare DLC (PS3/X360)

Corporate Warfare features a new mission arc that takes players deep into a civil war within the evil Ultor Corporation, and reveals the whereabouts of the long-lost 3rd Street Saint, Dex. The Saints Row 2 downloadable content also features new vehicles, customization options, multiplayer maps, achievements and more, and is available on Xbox Live for 560 Microsoft points and PlayStation Network for $7.00.
